About Karen

We recently purchased our second vacation rental. This is our fourth season of operation for our other property, the Little Wissota Cabin on the south shore of the same lake. We strive for attention to details which hopefully will assure you that what is advertised is what you will receive and that your time spent at our retreat will meet your expectations. Please see the many reviews regarding the "Peaceful Little Cabin for more information regarding our renters' satisfaction level with our services.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our family to gather! Comfortable beds, a clean and spacious house, and a well appointed kitchen. The house offers many different conversation areas to utilize inside, and different patios and decks to gather outside, all while enjoying the beauty

of the lake and shoreline with a fire pit as well! An added bonus is the nearby bakery, ice cream stand, and grocery store.

Comfortable, Spacious House on Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the Retreat for a fishing trip on Lake Wissota. The house was clean, comfortable, and with plenty of room. Zero complaints and we will absolutely stay there again should we make another trip to Lake Wissota.

Beutiful Lakefront Retreat for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property has a beautiful view of the Lake and was the perfect setting for a small family reunion. The house was set up perfectly with two levels for sleeping and entertaining. We could walk to resturants, or just relax and cook or grill.
